This is in part why even a GOP-held congress, senate, and White House winds up being almost as interventionist as when the Dems are in power.
People go into politics because they want to "do something". No one, or perhaps precious few, ever went into office to do nothing, or to limit his own power, or to let the people muddle through by their own devices.
The kind of guy who goes into politics isn't satisfied to just make sure the roads are paved.
The column on the dental assistant never said she was “too pretty”. Instead, it said the wife wanted her fired, after finding text messages between her husband and his assistant. The dentist complied to save his marriage (and probably his business from scandal).
The spurned assistant put up a snit and lost, never holding any cards in either the business, nor the marriage decisions. Texting was not smart in a professional relationship, for either party, but the dentist was the job provider and free to reverse course and affect change.
If banging your head against the wall doesn’t cure your headache, bang your head against the wall harder and faster.
It has been a few years but I once heard a sermon about adultery that contained the wisest advice I have ever heard. “When a man finds himself falling in love with a woman who is not his wife, he must never see her again.”
Since this man owns the dental practice, the only way to follow this Godly advice is to ask the woman to find another job. A woman with class and understandng would have no problem complying with such a request.
